QUESTION: 

Hi! Would love to know what you use for your matcha overnight oats! Any preferred brands?

Thanks,

Calia


ANSWER: 

For my Matcha Green tea oatmeal recipe, I used Matcha Kari's Organic Superior Matcha which is tasty and really good!

The Matcha Reserve sent me a mango matcha to try which I've been loving too, but there's something about matcha being flavored that I haven't quite wrapped my head around. I think because I love the taste of matcha green tea on its own.

I recently bought three new matcha's to try from good old Amazon because #theinfluenceisreal. One that I picked up and have really liked so far is Matsu, ceremonial grade by Matchaeologist ($28) It has a smooth nutty flavor which I personally like. I remember reading the description which said "Intense with a mellow roasted flavour" and thought "sounds like the way I like my coffee, why not... (add to cart)." What I love about Matchaeologist is that they support smaller tea farmers and honor the traditional ritual with a modern perspective. It's a philosophy that speaks to my heart.

The other one I picked up is by Ippodotea, Smooth Kimmo No Mukasahi ($25). I've seen this brand floating around Instagram from several wellness bloggers and again #theinfluencesireal. I haven't had the chance to try it yet, but I'll let you know as soon as I do!
